Each Super2 pickup has two coils, dah, we all know that. The coil of, each pick up, that is closest to (or facing) the bridge is known as the “south coil”. And, the coil of each pick up that is closest to the neck is known as the “north” coil.
I think what he is asking is what is the distance supposed to be from the “south” coil of the middle pick up to the bridge.
Also, I’m almost positive the “north” coils of all three super2’s are the coils that are on when any of them are split. That’s how mine is wired, anyway. I used Waldo’s diagrams.
actually, North & South are referring to each coils magnetic polarity.
when wired for a coil cut ala jerry's wiring, the coil that is cut is the south and the north remains active. however, orientation in the guitar will dictate what the north coil is closest to, either neck or bridge. you can use the pickups 4 conductor cable as a reference to orientate the pickup to have the north coil closest to the neck. that cable's hole in the base of the pickup should be closest to the electronic cavity for a righty and farthest away for a lefty. another way is the Dimarzio label, with the guitar standing vertical, should read upside down. also, you can just tap test each coil with a small metal object, such as a small screwdriver, to find out which coil is active. although you will hear the tap of the active coil on the non active coil, tapping the active coil will produce a much larger audible pop when tapped.
all that said, if one is not really looking to emulate a precise jerry tone it does not matter which coil is used when coil tapped.
